    Double IPA Water Chem Question

    I've used the Brewer Friend Water Chemistry Calculator for many of my beers. I'm trying to get to a good profile for a big IPA and am having trouble coming up with anything that doesn't put in the "danger do not drink this is poison" column. My profile is Ca 14, Mg 3, SO4 9, Na 8, Cl...

    Best Song By The Best Artist You've Never Heard Of

    I love music. I may actually perish without it. I'm always looking for something new. Share the name of a song by the best artist (individual or group) that you think very few people really know about. Mine is by a local favorite Charlie Parr "1922"

    I love pulled pork, almost as much as I love beer. Making it and eating it. :ban:

    "Big Red" Kamado Kooker at Menards

    I picked up one of these at Mendards for $348.00 I have a Large Big Green Egg but wanted a cooker/smoker for our cabin. The price was right but I'm curious if anyone on the forum has one or knows anything about them. I can't find a thing on the web.

    ton of trub

    I had an issue tonight with my hop blocker and without going into great detail, will end up with a huge amount of trub at the bottom of my carboy. I pitched the yeast but am now wondering if I should move it and re-pitch once it all settles out or if I should just let it be.

    My four year old made this guy over the weekend. He just looked like he was meant to be on a beer bottle.

    Better Bottle Advice Needed

    I have four glass carboys (6.5, 6. two 5s). Lately I've been looking at the Better Bottles especially after reading a couple of stories about broken or shattered bottles. I wondering how Better Bottle owners like the bottles compared to glass and if I should go with the valves. Also curious...

    Wort Chiller Copper Questions

    I want to make a wort chiller. For the design I want to build I need 50 feet. Both of my local stores have two options for copper tubing. The first is L grade and it only comes in 20 foot lengths. The L grade says it is for use with water and so I'm assuming would be safe to submerge in my...

    Big Green Egg Turkey

    OK so I realize this has nothing to do with beer, although I do plan on drinking beer with the turkey. I have a big green egg (ceramic cooker) and have made a variety of different recipes but never a turkey. I've volunteered to make the bird this year and am looking for any suggestions...

    toasting oats and barley question

    I'll be brewing up a recipe where I would like include toasted oats and barley. I am wondering if I should do this just prior to adding all my grains to my mash tun or is there a benefit to letting the oats and/or barley rest. If so how long would I want it to rest? I'd also be interested in...

    RV Water Filter Question

    I’ve been using a RV filter with my tap water but always get a little worried when I’ve not brewed for awhile. I know that both the RV hose and the filter I use have some water sitting in there from the last brew session. I always run the tap for about five minutes before filling my kettle to...

    Question about cold crashing and bottling

    Until now I have always used a secondary before bottling. I've decided to skip the secondary but would like to cold crash the primary. Typically my primary would be sitting at some optimal yeast fermentation temp when I add the priming sugar . When I take my primary out of the fridge I'm...
